Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donna S. Lundy, MA, CCC (University of Miami)
Description: The editor and contributors have completed extensive research into the communication disorders encountered in this population over the past ten years and present the highlights in a highly organized and readable fashion.
Purpose: This book presents a unique and comprehensive review of expected and anticipated speech and language disorders in children associated with treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and brain tumors. A tutorial on current medical/surgical management of these disorders is also presented.
Audience: This book is intended to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the management and implications of the two most common pediatric cancers, ALL and brain tumors, and their management. It is intended for speech-language pathologists practicing in a hospital setting but would also be applicable for those in a public school setting, private practice, or home care.
Features: The book is clearly organized by type of cancer, anatomic deficits, treatment options, and communication disorders. A highlight is the excellent use of case studies which are abundant throughout and which serve to personalize the specific tumors and their treatment. The authors obviously use standardized protocols in assessing these children, and reporting like data or test results across the various tumor presentations and age groups is a big advantage. An additional highlight is the CT scans that accompany each case presentation and more clearly document the neuro-anatomic defects.
Assessment: This is an outstanding and comprehensive review of communications disorders associated with pediatric cancers. State-of-the-art medical/surgical management is presented and ten years of clinical research into the speech-language disorders is summarized. This book is highly recommended for any speech-language pathologist involved in the care and management of children with cancer. It would also be a useful adjunct for other health-care professionals working in the area of pediatric oncology.
